SSO SUBSCRIPTION CONCERT: ELIAHU IN...
“Of all his works this was the most personal… We were both in tears… so deeply did we feel this music and the sinister premonitions it disclosed.” – Alma Mahler.Eliahu Inbal, conductorMAHLER Symphony No. 6 in A minor “Tragic”Written in an apparently happy period of his life, Mahler’s “Tragic Symphony” is often described in the exact opposite of terms: nihilistic, dark, foreboding. The tender slow movement aside, it “ends in hopelessness and the dark night of the soul” with its infamous hammer blows.

Alina Ibragimova, violinMusicians of the SSORussian-British violinist Alina Ibragimova joins SSO musicians in an all-Russian programme across three Russian greats in their characteristic musical modes.

SSO CHAMBER SERIES: THE GLORY OF BA...
Peter Hanson, violin/ conductorSSO MusiciansFrom Gabrieli to Handel, take a trip with UK period instrument violinist Peter Hanson through the elegance and riches of the Baroque greats, whose genius is displayed in their rich writing for voice and instrument – for which they often treated one like the other. A multitude of solos is key to the design of the concerto grosso, a compact instrumental showcase that the likes of Biber and Vivaldi developed to spectacular heights. Arias from Handel’s most popular oratorio, Messiah, are just a tiny sample of the vast treasure troves of Baroque musical drama. Purcell’s pioneering work setting English language theatre music, and the lively dance-operas of French Baroque master, Jean-Philippe Rameau, equally deserve your listening ear.
